Star Platinum has got to be my favorite H-Game to come out in a long time. Released by Cybertech Custom (Carat, Teen) for the NEC PC9801 and later ported to Win9X, Star Platinum has remained on my hard drive longer than any other H-Game.
The story from what I can see is pretty minimal. It's about a man who is visited by a tiny fairy who brings him a deck of cards. Any girl he meets he can challenge to this card game. Every time he wins he can control them. So more or less the man goes on a field day playing girls left and right.
Graphics are just amazing. They're some of the best I've seen yet in a game, very detailed, nice vibrant colors, overall better than most games out there.
Gameplay is the strongest point.The game is played using a weird deck of cards. The idea is to collect sets of cards and perform combos with cards to do damage to your oppenent. I sat there for about 25 minutes with no clue what to do and soon enough I got the game totally down. I have even gone back to this game just to play the card game.
The legnth unfortunately is pretty short but the replay value is there. There are a LOT of bonus modes that can be opened. Once you get good enough it'll be a breeze to open them all. And another great thing is that for people who can't read Japanese at all (like me), the game is still totally playable. The weakest point of the game is the music which sounds like music ripped from a porno movie.
Bottom line, Star Platinum is a game worth getting.
